Yesterday, the purple purse was found and returned to the owner!!  But now another student has lost a wallet, with important I.D. in it.  The wallet is dark blue with an embroidery pattern on it.  If you have come across it, please help out your fellow student and bring it to the office.

Math Contests
There are two math contests coming up and there are still spots available. The AMC10 and AMC12 are on TUESDAY, February 7th in Block 1 in room 215.  The Pascal. Cayley, and Fermat contests (which are for grades 9, 10 and 11) are on TUESDAY, February 28th in Block 1.  Sign-up sheets are on the bulletin board outside room 133.  See Mr. Skanks or Mr. Paananen if you have any questions.

Year-Long Drama
Claremont's Year-Long Drama presents the play “Up The Down Staircase,” running Feb 8, 10, 11 and Feb 15-18 at 7:30pm (and Feb 9th at 8:00pm to accommodate our Open House).  This play is both funny and insightful; it tells the tale of a new teacher coming into an inner-city school in 1959, where she is full of hope and the desire to make things better, but finds that making change is never easy. Tickets are $7.50 at the door (no pre-sales).

Handbags for Hope
The Key Club will be collecting gently used handbags, scarves or jewelry for raising funds for neuroblastoma, which is the most common cancer in children under the age of 1. The table will be in the main hallway at lunch every day starting Monday!

Job Opportunities

A local business (on Claremont Road) requires a student for some part-time office help: general office organization, filing and sorting of documents.  Individual must be detail oriented and organized.  Start as soon as this weekend, if possible!  $12.00 per hour. 

The same local business (on Claremont Road), also requires a strong, able-bodied student to move around some office storage and filing boxes, and to help with office rearrangement.  Please see Mr. Arsenault for more information about both positions.

Seasonal jobs are now being advertised at Butchart Gardens, offering flexible part-time and full-time positions, mainly from April through to October.  Ability to speak a second language is a huge asset.  More information and application forms available in the Career Centre.

GRAD 2017
Grad Transition

Final exams are done, so now it's time to focus on completing your Grad Transition!   Very few grade 12s have completed and submitted their GT forms so far.  Remember that Grad Transition is a Grad requirement - you cannot graduate without it!  Please get your GT forms from the Career Centre and complete them while you have your choice of who to do your interview with.  If you wait too late, formal GT interviews will be scheduled for you.
